Meet Seattle’s “Bus Chick”

9:05 AM PST on March 4, 2009

Carla Saulter is part of a car-free, transit-riding family who pens a very eclectic blog called Bus Chick, Transit Authority, which you can find on the Seattle Post Intelligencer's website.

As you'll see, Carla is all about riding transit and inspiring
others to. And the bus has indeed figured prominently in her life: she
met her husband riding the bus, it has provided her with a creative
outlet for stories and interesting anecdotes, and she named her first
child for one of the greatest heroines in bus history!

I was bowled over when I heard that Carla actually went by bus to
the hospital to give birth (not to mention to also come home
afterwards!) It was then that I knew she was one of the heroes of the
world and I needed to profile her. I just wish I lived closer to the
Bus Chick family so I could hang out and ride the bus with them more
often.
